Water restrictions lead me to a lay-off on my gardening job so back to being unemployed; oh well more time to treasure hunt, kinda switching it up to park hunting in hopes of finding gold I can sell for rent money while I wait for responses to my applications.
Back to full time employment, my BLM casual use placer mining paperwork has been approved so when I can find time I'm going to post some prospecting shots/relic hunting with detector/river snorkling on species creek later in the summer. Happy hunting yall gonna be awhile before I'm going to have time to dig any holes so be safe and find killer stuff so I can geek on your finds!
Working on BLM paperwork so I can get on our club's gold claim, temperatures are still below freezing in Telluride at night so probably be some time before I can get into the water but am going to water hunt/river snorkel for the relics the other gold seekers have lost in the past (people have been panning this area since 1870s) this summer.
New permission hunt on Saturday April 2nd, huge ca 1909 field site lots of detectors involved should have some cool pics of that hunt coming next week. In meantime going to get into a little park hunting which isn't my usual MO but starting to like finding jewelry as well as historic so expanding my horizons I suppose (also digging tons of pulltabs but par for course in park hunting). Take care all.
Trying to fit in as much adventure as I can handle before returning to full time work in May (I'm a gardener in a resort town) so may try to metal detect under some ski lifts this summer and will have access to a gold claim and a ghost town nearby so hopefully can squeeze in some bottle digging and water metal detecting too. God bless take care find stuff!
